"A Man’s Rights Rest in Three Boxes:
The Ballot Box,
The Jury Box,
and the
Cartridge Box"
Frederick Douglass, 1867


"It has been repeatedly and conclusively shown that
Donald Trump in fact won the White House because
of racism and nativism. But sexism was a key element
in Trump’s victory as well. These values, beliefs, and
behaviors interact with one another."

As the iconic 19th century Black American orator Frederick Douglass so aptly put it in 1867, “a man’s rights rest in three boxes: the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.”

The Life and Times of Frederick Douglass

With the rise of post-reconstruction Jim Crow segregation and wanton violence at the end of the 19th century, Negro advocates continued to advocate meeting “fire with fire.” The famed anti-lynching crusader, Ida B. Wells-Barnett, offered this in 1892, “A Winchester rifle should have a place of honor in every Black home, and it should be used for that protection which the law refuses to give.”

Ida B. was telling it like it really was . . . and still is.

Here in 2019, White America is armed, locked n’ cocked - both barrels, and please, let’s be brutally blunt . . . all those guns, all that armor-piercing ammo and those night-vision goggles, personal bazookas and backyard tanks - well that’s all for our black n’ brown asses. Yes it is! Millions of white folks are waiting, planning, calculating and preparing for some form of a “Red Dawn” 2nd Civil War.

There’s a new report out on coffee tables all across these divided States of America, it’s titled “The Anger Games: Who Voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 Election, and Why?” Dig this from it: Despite all of the disproved narratives about the “white working class,” it has been repeatedly and conclusively shown that “Donald Trump in fact won the White House because of racism and nativism. But sexism was a key element in Trump’s victory as well. These values, beliefs, and behaviors interact with one another.” This report offers new research by University of Kansas sociologists David Smith and Eric Hanley

This reports illustrates the voodoo chili that the America, 'melting pot" is today white America has crowned a king to rid the land of the unwashed masses . . . by any diabolical means this tyrant deems necessary.

Turn off the ballgame, baby-brah" . . . do you hear the neo-Confederate Viking war drums pounding on FOX News or on one of the many Sinclair outlets? . . . White America see's a "when push comes to shove” moment on the horizon . . . while most black men are listening to the game, pathetically listening to a couple of things we have a knowledge and understanding of - sports and entertainment. We don’t know too-much, about a 8th grade knowledge base related-to global economics or local politics.

Writing in “The Anger Games: Who Voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 Election, and Why?” - which appeared in a recent issue of the Journal Critical Sociology, Smith and Hanley summarize their new research: ”We find that Trump’s supporters voted for him mainly because they share his prejudices, not because they’re financially stressed.

As a people black America is so woefully under-educated - we simply don’t understand the US timeline, we fail to grasp the complexity of the history of the country or the world . . . but however, we do know the timeline for Empire and the Sapphire tramps of whatever hood they hail from. Black folks have unthinkingly calculated that the Right will either; realize Trump is pimping them for personal profits . . . or, that he’s a traitor . . . or that obviously he has no character, no morals no ethics beyond adhering to the noble thought - “life ain't nuthin’ but bitches and money….”

And I quote Harriet Tubman: I freed a thousand slaves I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.” I’d submit that today the 50% of Blacks who were asleep and delusional that Tubman alluded to well over a century ago . . . , there’s still a “half” of Black America asleep, delusional, in denial and disconnected from political and social realities of this empire.

I’m going to circle the block again and cite the “The Anger Games: Who Voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 Election, and Why?” "For educated liberals, it’s reassuring to think that white voters who pulled the lever for Donald Trump were simply making a mistake, and that they would have done better if they had better understood their own interests. The implication is that, if liberals do their job properly, the less educated will be better educated in the future. Once they learn a few basic lessons, they’ll make better decisions. This paternalism – I can’t see another good word for it – irritates Trump’s troops and aggravates their hatred for “cultural elites” and “political correctness.”

I’m a Black man living in a nation in-which the average white man believes belongs solely to them, actually it’s their own personal country, and they’re standing by their flame-haired Klansman, strategically siding-with Trump, in the face of him being a traitor, who’s betrayed the best-interest of America for his own personal gains, he’s gotten in bed with commie/pinko Russian oligarch pimps, and yet most of White America is supporting him for they too have gotten in bed with these thugs - it’s an orgy of white supremacy. Let’s recognize white America is turning their backs on their so-called “fellow” Black/ Latino/Native/Asian-American citizens. I.e., Americans of color, instead choosing white supremacy, and white brotherhood with Russia over freedom, liberty, equality and justice for all.

Let me drag the report back in one last time: “liberal denial.” Liberals in denial know that bullying happens. They see jeering and bad behavior, but they interpret it as a sign of immaturity, not meanness. They think that people misbehave mainly when they’re afraid or confused; that they lash out when they’re misinformed about the real cause of their troubles. So the liberal solution is education. Give people who talk like angry bigots the facts, they think – show them that their fears and hostilities are misplaced – and they’ll change their ways. . . . In my opinion that’s very rarely true. But the liberal belief in the redeeming power of facts is powerful – and that connects directly to the narrative of the “white working class.”

There’s not a day go by that my Smart-News feed doesn't offer some news story about white people dressing as plantation masters, making a video about how they hate niggers, rubbing some black kids head for luck, calling the police because a black guy is walking a dog down their street . . . apparently, just based on the daily news - there was an inordinate if not unfathomable amount of good ol' boy redneck hatred embedded within the fabric of White America.

I believe the combination of ignorance and a lack of hands on experience with white folks has created a few generations of black and brown folks who are simply asleep and don’t understand the bigger picture of the American timeline as well as who and what white America is capable of.

Rosewood . . .

The Republican TEA Party has sold their isolationist souls to the devil, not tied them to a set of high-minded conservative principles. You may not get to this . . . but get here; Most of White America, almost all males and 60% of woman are siding with Putin and the White Russians. As a people, white America is picking white brotherhood with Russia, led by a White King who will never stand election, but instead years from now hand the throne to his son.

Bill Maher, Omarosa and Michael Cohen believe that, so does Desi Cortez.

Trump stands to be reelected because white people are “standing by their Caveman,” regardless of his glaring character flaws and because of his white supremacy mentality, because he’s striving to take back their America, make it white again, .

As we wait for this aspiring emperor to die a death by a 1000 hearings, as Nancy and the “moderates” task with controlling the “new uppity" congress membership have taken “Impeachment” off the table - leaving the fate, destiny and actual physical safety of Black people is in the undersized hands of Trump.
